Deeper sounding of course is the baritone tuned down so the lowest string is A, not D. Gordon Hardy always (almost) plays a baritone, so you could hear that sound. No idea who specifically, but Kentucky is loaded with dulcimer builders. Myself I'd get a McSpadden baritone. I built one from them from a kit, and it came of nice, and bought another, a Ginger tuned UP a 4th. Love them both. Best luck to you. Course, it's always best to be able to play before buying, and getting so you can play decently will help you make a better decision.

Howdy and welcome to FOTMD!
Welcome to FOTMD Sandy. It's good to have you aboard.
"The dulcimer sings a sweet song."
Hey Sandy, welcome aboard. Glad ya found us.
Thank you all for the friendly welcome. I hope to learn a lot from everyone. I am already looking to purchase a 4 string dulcimer. I have learned a lot from my 6 string ( which I call Lucy ) I know now not to purchase a dulcimer without hearing it's sound. I am hearing impaired and need lower register of sound. I noticed there is something going on in Kentucky in November. I hope to get the chance to go.
